Traditional Homemade Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Pumpkin Pie is a Fall favorite. It's popularity rises a soon as bright, orange pumpkins show up at the markets, and as the weather cools down. Pumpkin pie remains popular all through the holiday season. We wouldn't think of Thanksgiving dinner without this pie. And, for many of us, it's a "must have" pie during the Christmas and the holiday season.

Here's a recipe you can use with your home grown pumpkins:

This recipe starts with your own home made puree

If you choose not to use your own pumpkins to make puree, that's okay. Just use canned pumpkin puree.

2 Eggs, slightly beaten

16 oz. Homemade Pumpkin Puree, or a 16oz. can of puree

3/4 cups Sugar

1/2 tsp. Salt

1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger

13 oz. Evaporated Milk

9-inch Unbaked Pie Shell
